In an interview with BuzzFeed’s Ruby Cramer, Howard Dean couldn’t rule out a run for president in 2016, but there are some serious considerations. Not only is there Hillary Clinton to contend with, but there are also “the Twitchies.”

Dean said he manages his own account Twitter, where he only follows about 60 people — mostly friends — and often blocks people to keep himself from getting too worked up. “I cut people off on the left not just on the right. And I’m victimized by the Twitchies,” he said, referring to the conservative website that curates tweets and often attacks members of the media. “And I’ve also realized there’s a Twitchy on the left. Max Blumenthal is a Twitchy.”

To be honest, the real Twitchy is too busy curating tweets to attack members of the media “often.” But if Dean truly feels victimized by “the Twitchies,” it’s probably best that he stay out of politics altogether, lest this happen again:
